Happy July!

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Happy July.. seems like July feels to be more officially summer than June? At least here in Seattle area as it takes a while to really warm up.

Nutrition has been good lately! I'm really really determined to make weightloss progress and my nutrition has been my downfall.
I've really cut back on bread carbs. Focusing on veggies and fruits with proteins. Greek yogurt (plain), cottage cheese, chicken, steak, eggs. With lots of veggies and fruits!

Workouts are pretty much the same as usual. Since running the marathon last month, I've cut WAY back on running! ;) Probably too much! Monday hill runs are consistent. I need to be doing another 2 days of running to maintain fitness and sanity! It isn't always happening, but will be working on that.

I'm going swimming tomorrow! in the lake! One of my co-workers is signed up for the Iron Girl Sprint-tri (this will be her first) and since I can't participate this year (work travel that weekend), I want to support her training by doing some workouts with her!

So, hoping to 'change' things up a bit and get some new workouts back in the rotation!

Happy July. Hope you are having a nice summer.
Anything new in your food or workout rotation?!

I hope to share an updated weigh-in later this week!

    Happy July to you! I'm off to Minnesota for 9 days so hopefully I can stay on track there, or at least not get too far off track. I've kinda been in a slump anyway so maybe I just need some time away. Hope your swim goes swimmingly! emoticon

    I'm just really trying to push ST these days. I've always enjoyed cardio more but need to build some muscle. "Muscle burns more than fat" or so they say.
    Food is always a challenge. This mornings donut and muffin were likely bad choices. emoticon

    Enjoy your swim!

    I'm letting my foot/ankle heal, so I haven't run in a few weeks. I'm doing Run or Dye on July 12th. I'll try running it and see how the foot feels. My doctor's appointment is a week later, so if running crunches up my foot, at least I'll be able to tell the doc I laid off for a month and it still hurts. (Not sure, but I'm hoping that will help with a diagnosis.)

    I still haven't dragged myself into the weight room to resume strength training. But I am now swimming with a snorkel. It allows me to concentrate on my form without worrying about breathing. I do a lap or two at the end of each workout without flippers or the snorkel just to remind my body what it's expected to do. I think the snorkel is helping.

    I just realized that the lap pool is available at 4:30 p.m. every weekday, so any time I drive home, I can go for a swim. I'm riding home tonight, but I'll drive home tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it!
